Cadbury's Crunchie Blast in Hartford, CT area?

            Right up 495, take exit 31 towards Littleton common, go through the first set of lights (that come up nearly immediately after the ramp), take a left at the next set of lights (advertising Nashoba Valley Ski Area).
            Pass the ski area, and the first strip mall you see (a church called Song), and it's in the next strip mall -- you'll see a british flag hanging out front.

            Looks very non-descript, and they do tend to have their blinds closed most of the time for some reason, but they are open general business hours, and I believe I've seen em open on Saturday - not sure about Sunday.

            They seem to do most of their business via the web (
